Boix-de-Houx (/bwɑdə‿u/) is a city in the western half of La Hache in the Çyr renowned internationally as a centre for the domestic and international film industries. The city is presently home to a number of international multi-media companies along with new and historic film studios. Due in part to its association with popular culture, the city is a large tourist destination and is renowned for its vibrant nightlife.

While the exact date of its first founding is unknown, a modest fishing village known as Alghaba occupied the site of the town which was founded by Burgundian colonists in 1770. However, the town remained in relative obscurity until the advent of film in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The city has since rapid expansion through the latter half of the 20th century and is now the second-most populous urban centre on the isles while maintaining a relatively large rate of expansion compared to other cities in the Çyr.
